Test results of five SSDs that boot using a SATA to USB 3.0 Adapter on a Raspberry Pi.
Raspberry Pi Model 4 B 4 GB
Inateck SATA to USB with UASP mode
Run the benchmark on your Raspberry Pi with the CLI command:
sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/TheRemote/PiBenchmarks/master/Storage.sh | sudo bash
The benchmark website only posts the highest score and does not show different SATA to USB interfaces used.
The very high scores are sometimes CPUs overclock to 2GHz and 2.1GHz.
The normal RPi 4 CPU clock speed is 1.5 GHz.

All five SSDs worked booting the RPi.

Please post your Raspberry Pi memory benchmark results with your configuration.
If you are just starting with a SSD for a Raspberry Pi 4,
I recommend you get two Kingston A400 120 GB SSDs and two Inateck SATA to USB.
SD disk copier is used to copy your working SSD to the second SSD for backups.
